Christmas Greetings

Just a few days before Christmas and all through my home
Preparations have been made for the big day to come

Presents are wrapped and under the tree

Treasured ornaments put up for all to see

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

A day with the grandkids making cookies to share

Little hands at work, sounds of delight

Some of those creations were quite a sight!

A busy season, I could use a rest
But times like these, I realize I am blessed.

Greetings from friends and family far and near
Remind us of all those we hold most dear.

Happy memories of times spent with those far away

And joy in the little one who will enjoy his first Christmas Day.

From our house to yours, wishes of peace and good cheer:

Merry  Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

oh wow, those are a lot of stockings! but then I saw all the little ones making cookies and I realized who all those stockings were for. Nice to see my cat is not the only one who prefers sleeping on the tree skirt. Have a wonderful Christmas and best wishes in the new year.
